We just finished publishing our first two reviews of the BMW 3 Series – 330i and M340i – and the third one with the 320d is just around the corner. But before we send it out, we wanted to give you a new photo gallery of the car. The 2019 G20 320d in Alpine White took part in a phototshoot in Portimao, Portugal, capturing not only the design of the car, but also the beautiful Portuguese surroundings.
In the US, the standard colors are Alpine White and Jet Black, while for $550, you get additional options – Black Sapphire Metallic, Melbourne Red Metallic, Glacier Silver Metallic, Mineral White Metallic, Mineral Grey Metallic ,Mediterranean Blue Metallic, Sunset Orange Metallic, Vermont Bronze Metallic, Portimao Blue Metallic and Blue Ridge Mountain Metallic.
It’s also refreshing to see is that the standard 3 Series will come with some cool colors, rather than just the typical slew of blacks, whites and silvers. For instance, the blue launch color we’ve seen in all of the press and auto show photos is called Portimao Blue, named for the racetrack in Portugal. It also gets Sunset Orange Metallic, a color offered on the new M2 Competition and even the new 8 Series.
The 320d we drove was the European model, powered by a 2.0 liter turbo diesel engine making 190 hp and returning combined: 4.7–4.4 l/100 km. The drag coefficient (Cd) of the BMW 320d has been reduced from 0.26 to 0.23.
In Europe, the new G20 320d will get both the six-speed manual and the optional eight-speed automatic transmission.
Enjoy the photo gallery below and stay tuned for our review!
